Parish Mission: Prepare Your Heart for Advent

Friday, December 15 through Sunday, December 17, St. Scholastica is hosting its Advent Parish Mission with Father Jay Buhman.

Fr. Buhman grew up York, Nebraska. studied at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was ordained in 2004 to the priesthood for his home Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska.  Following ordination, he served as a parochial vicar in three parishes in Lincoln, Nebraska and as a pastor of two rural parishes in east-central Nebraska.  He also spent eleven years teaching in the Diocesan Catholic Schools.  In 2015, Father was released from the Diocese of Lincoln to serve as a national chaplain for FOCUS and has spent the last two years with FOCUS living in Denver, Colorado.

Join us for the mission, encounter Christ more deeply and prepare your heart for the incarnation of Christ at Christmas.  Each evening will feature opportunities for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Confession and fellowship.  We will start with supper in the parish hall and then move to the church.
